For the little story, DR is for David Reich.
My wife worked for his brother, Eric Reich, an orthodontist in Montreal while we lived there.
David left Classé for Theta in California.
Very sad for Classé.

Hopefully, all goes well for the new Classe. However, it will just be 'a name' and likely nothing will be made in Canada.

Default Good news

This is good news for Classe'.
Hard to know what Sound United will do with the brand, but at least they are not new to the Audio world, having sheparded Marantz and Denon after D&M holdings sold McIntosh.

Seems like a good opportunity to stuff Marantz and Denon sourced parts into Classe and sell at a premium under the new roof. I could be wrong.

So only Canadian people can assemble audio components correctly? I would think by now you would realize that everything made in Asia is not "cheaply made". How many people including you own a mobile device? I am pretty sure mine doesn't say made in Canada. I learned what happens from my neighbor who inherited a tool company from his father in law and then moved the business to Taiwan. He visited there and came back very impressed by their facilities and process.
